TNTM: Stan Lee Action Adventure film in the Works

Fox to Turn Stan Lee’s Life into ‘70s Action Adventure Film

Stan Lee is a household name to even the most casual comic book fan nowadays.  That wasn’t always the case.  Twentieth Century Fox obtained the rights to produce a 1970s style action adventure film based on Stan Lee’s life.  The exploits of the early comic book writers and artists is very colorful and I for one would love to hear more about that era of comics.

In the 1970s Lee moved to Hollywood in an attempt to get Marvel’s characters into movie theaters. His attempts were largely unsuccessful.  History has shown that Lee may have just been a few decades ahead of his time.

Lee began working for Timely Comics (which would later become Marvel Comics) in 1939. By the 1960s, Lee was ready to quit the industry. His wife convinced him to give comics one more try by making the kind of story he wanted rather than what his superiors recommended. The result was Fantastic Four #1, a breakthrough collaboration with Jack Kirby that birthed the Marvel Universe.

Lee went on to co-create other characters including Spider-Man, the X-Men, Hulk, and Doctor Strange with artists Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko.

Stan Lee is the co-creator of many of Marvel Comics’ most prominent characters. Twentieth Century Fox has been responsible for bringing some of those characters to movie theaters, including the Fantastic Four and the X-Men. Lee has made many a cameo appearance in Marvel films.

He has also appeared as himself in some non-Marvel films and TV shows such as Mallrats and Entourage. His cameos have become so commonplace that audiences look forward to his often comical appearances.

The plan is to create an 1970s type adventure with Lee as the main character with an alter ego.  The film will have a tone mirroring that of movies like Kingsman: The Secret Service and Roger Moore’s James Bond films.  Lee and Gil Champion, Lee’s partner at POW! Entertainment, will serve as executive producers.
